This garden totem was inspired by the beautiful Laura Ashley vase (turned upside down) found at a local thrift store. I'd had this vase for several months just waiting for the right pieces to design a totem. I was so happy when I found the sweet teapot shown here. With the vase and teapot I knew I had my design and this is the finished piece. Hard to believe this totem was created from other's "trash". It really does bring me joy to transform unwanted objects into things of beauty.
